god made me, the sundays
march 7, 1998
one thing cool about those "meet a wife" type services is the
pictures of all the different kinds of girls in the world.
GIRLS can also be accessed thru LINKS, MISC, GIRLS...
i digs checkin' out not only the different looks & styles, but
the names and physical sizes of the girls on this planet...
very few things can move me like the female gender does
march 5, 1998
a good grocery store should be nearby, open 24 hours, clean and
well lit. it should provide good/smart service & food. it
should have a minmum of 3 cute girls as customers or employees
per visit. it should also have multi-aisle open discussions about
the pittsburgh steelers and parliament funkadelic, neither of which
i started but enjoyed very much. must have been my jersey and
hat, respectively...cosmic (not just) knee deep pump up for the
J&PTracy connection for some serious serious p-funk music (& pizza)-
funkadelic: rocky moutain shakedown, 1992 triangle records pycd 072
(live in denver, 1976) & funkadelic: live meadowbrook, rochester,
michigan, westbound records cdsewd 108 (live 9/12/71)...
the mothership has landed and the funk has been spread far & wide,
i say we stir in some theory and see what it tastes like...
its gonna be funky like hughes market (van nuys & burbank)
march 3, 1998
i know im bringing this out way too early, but im too
excited and way too proud of
thesisUNIVERSE to keep it
to myself. i even took all the pictures. if i don't loose
intrest, i think it could be a book...
february 25, 1998
on monday i attended a very exclusive premeire of our movie
"caught up". the movie is cool cause even though i don't like
"ghetto gangsta" movies, i adjusted my thinking to understand
that some of the stuff was meant to be laughed at. all the movie's
stars and other celebs were there, it was cool...the after party
was at billboard live and it was bumpin'!! very attractive,
outgoing, positive crowd with personality (95% black with a few WGs),
very good music and folx was groovin'. when black folx party
right, it is very good and this was one of those times...
the working title for my new inspiration is "THESIS UNIVERSE"
it will be a good logical look at who and why we are...
february 10, 1998
go to las vegas, don't gamble, have a good time...downtown vegas
fremont street experience is country as hell, but the light and
audio show is still very cool. lady luck's buffet rates a c-, but
has all-u-can eat crab legs...ceasar's palace really impressed me-
very cool place to hang out, lotsa shops, people (girl) watching,
talking statues and other attractions to see...the virtual reality
ride "race for atlantis" is very, very good. 3D glasses with a
wireless stereo for surround sound built-in...i found the text of a astronomy book on the web...i just printed chapter 1- 27 to go...
from information comes knowledge, from knowledge understanding-
and understanding is the key to every lock in the universe.
-i just made that up...
january 30, 1998
as one may have noticed, my inspiration to write the dailys has
faded. but has given way to yet another inspiration, call it
an evolution of sorts...fasten your safety belts and stay tuned
george clinton and the parliament funkadelic
march 26 * billboard live hollywood, CA
january 21, 1998
work in progress...
january 20, 1998
there was a problem with the network today and i made the call
to shut it down. our MIS, novell tech support (on phone 3+
hours) and another platinum novell engineer all worked very hard
(and very good) together and finally got it going right after we
commited to staying all night and rebuilding the userbase by hand.
i like the way quentin tarantino showcases the human element in
relativity simple plots as in jackie brown , stereotypes and all...
physicists believe there are 8 ideas of quantum reality ...
young quarterbacks & young girls, kordell will be back and so will
the pittsburgh steelers...go elway!!!

january 9, 1998
one of our corporate executive's ("i just saved this company 5
million dollars") used his cellular to call his assistant ("where's
my 17" monitor?") who in turned paged me to tell me that he was at
the airport in a line two places behind george clinton. a little
later i got another page and she told me he had got me an autograph.
this is why i love my job and the people i work with so much. i was
moved not so much by the autograph, but by the thought and actions
of my co-workers. and i couldn't wait to tell my mother & father who
after 20 years have grown to acknowledge this p-funk stuff...
january 7, 1998
alana davis' cd "blame it on me" is VERY, VERY, VERY good. the
sundays' cd "the blind" is another good one. talked/begged/charmed
my way out of a speeding ticket today on the 170 north just before
sherman way...the syquest sparq 1.0 gig drive "light my fire" ad
campaign which features the eyes and the frenchbraids of a black
girl is cool... the movie "contact" inspired me to be up at 2am
that night drawing sketch2 (cleaned-up version i did the next day).
i want to take some physics classes...
january 5, 1998
i spent new year's eve alone, doing my '95 & '96 taxes, this time
without cheating. now there are absolutely no more lies in my life.
then i quietly slipped into 1998 with my experiences of 1997, listening
to "make my funk the p-funk" and with a deep heart felt excitement for
the coming year that made me smile...a month worth of ketchup: p-funk concert, steeler-cardinal game, jerry's famous deli (pasadena
& encino), rasputin russian bistro (ventura blvd, encino), company
x-mas party (gotham hall, santa monica), tournament of roses parade,
traffic school, a very good bucket of fries from robin's resturant
(rosemead blvd, pasadena) ...
december 3, 1997
my father left a message on my machine saying "somehow" he "put some
numbers in" and got to my webpage, he then began reading the daily
about me dropping the ceo's libretto..."now everyone's gonna know"...
my company's x-mas party is gonna be at gotham hall (3rd st
promenade, santa monica) "music, billiards and dancing till midnight"
november 26, 1997
today it paid to have a digital camera; rainbow.jpg , rainbow1.jpg -
and if i take back the 13" color TV and the portable cd player i may
be able to keep it...hey! maybe with my comdex expense check i can get
a better one...it is the holidays, ain't it?
november 23, 1997
today: the first pittsburgh steeler regular season game in
probably 5 seasons i didn't either attend or watch on television.
friday: everything i did was irritatingly difficult. saturday:
dropped & broke a brand-new toshiba libretto...ceo's personal-
if everyday was like this heaven would be something to look forward too..
november 16, 1997
the keynote address to open comdex fall '97 was setup just like
a tv info-mercial. the crowd was ultra square, unfunky, not so
much nerdy- but very, very generic...are these my peers? PFUNK1-ON-COMDEX
november 10, 1997
the first thing my 9 yr old daughter did when she 3-way called
me from ohio was to properly introduce me to her girlfriend on
the other line. then she told me her brother's football team had
won the championship and he was playing sega. i bowled a whole
game standing on the floor by rolling the ball onto the lane while
dancin/talkin during my co. bowling party at bayshore bowl (pico,
santa monica). earlier that evening i won $500 for throwing a
turkey (3 strikes in a row), $20 on the side and 1 (best style)
of the 3 trophys given...
im not conceited- by no means,
i just know what im capable of
november 5, 1997
aol messenger lets non-aol internet users send instant messages
to aol users, and its free...awhile back i noticed an interesting
"thought of the day" type calendar on a co-workers desk and i asked
her about it. she gave me the book "the celestine prophecy" and i
read the first few chapters- it was very good. out of the blue she
gave me today's thought and it moved and excited me cause it put
into words something that i do/feel and try to explain to others...
i consider this a MAJOR affirmation of my philosophy right down
to the word hedonistic...
"the first step in sending energy to others is to keep our own
energy high then we start the flow of energy coming into us, through us, and
into the other person. the more we appreciate their wholeness, their inner
beauty, the more the energy flows into them, and naturally, the more that flows
into us. its really a rather hedonistic thing to do. the more we can love and
appreciate others, the more the energy flows into us. thats why loving and
energizing others is the best possible thing we can do for ourselves."
commentary on the 8th insight, the celestine prophecy
november 3, 1997
i should have known that we were in for a different level of
service when my sample of tuna jerky was handed to me bare handed-
however, it was still very good just like the fish & chips, fried
clams, and sauteed fish at the seafood resturant (mission bay,
san diego). nothing like a gorgeous roof-off ride, good food, and
a nice outdoor nap in the grass on a blanket with a good friend-
on my way home from doing laundry i found a nice spot (overlooking
JPL of all places), mounted my binoculars on a camera tripod i just
happen to have in my trunk and viewed a magnificient moon, mars,
venus and jupiter...venus is the very bright southwestern object...
the sundays CD "static and silence" is another very good contributor
to my white girl music infatuation, i noticed it because of the very
cool picture of the moon on the cover...
october 30, 1997
when they realized they forgot my order at Fab's (van nuys blvd,
sherman oaks) they also remembered i was the guy that the roof
leaked on the last time we were there. when i did get my pizza
it was very good and everybody was so cool there it was fun. the
music to two of the intel pentium processor and a microsoft
commercial is "play that funky music whiteboy" by wild cherry,
"love rollercoaster" ohio players and "shining star" earth-wind
& fire, respectively- all were favorite songs of mine in elementry
& junior high school. i like to see that the industry i love is
as funky & aggressive as the IBM dennis leary lotus domino
commercials; work the web... where do you wanna go today?
october 27, 1997
the atmosphere, service, menu selections and food preparation at
sid's seafood house (roscoe blvd, canoga park) are A++, the bland
tasting food and the hard complimentry bread gets a C at best...i
probably pay for half of the meals mentioned in the dailys, i got
very social friends and family. pizza hut's new pizza "the edge,"
is thin crust, cut in squares and quite tasty (i got extra sauce,
mushrooms, sausage, pepperoni & black olives).
october 22, 1997
lust is my favorite sin, then gluttony. i vowed last year that i wood
go to comdex '97 (nov 17-21, las vegas), i got approval today. the
very sour & doughy (and complimentry) bread, the free-refills of diet
coke and the antipasta salad at Fab's italian kitchen (van nuys blvd,
sherman oaks) are all very, very good. the sausage & peppers hero
sandwich is ok, but their pizza looked better- and i didn't even mind
when the roof started to leak air condition water on me...
october 21, 1997
happy birthday to "the one that broke my heart." i can still feel you
jackie and i remember all the fun we had; santa cruz, SF, san diego, phx,
vegas, late night avicom, teriyaki steak, olive garden, safari bar, etc...
the hot wings, greens and fries at wings & things II (colton) were ok,
it was the hanging out in a black resturant in a black neighborhood that
impressed me...sometimes a brutha forgets how much flava his people have...
the rose we remember, the thorns we forget
never as good as the first time, sade
october 15, 1997
the scarletts are a very funky white female r&b band (white girl funk thang)
that play at cozy's (ventura blvd, sherman oaks) on wednesday nights. the
bass player quickly remembered their gig at q's in pasadena when i saw them
a couple years ago. their drummer also plays with tower of power, the same
T O P that i couldn't scalp a ticket for in SF (i think i saw him). i told
him that while we were hanging out between sets while he sold $3 bags of
some pretty good peanut brittle (LilHermans@aol.com) that he makes himself...
october 15, 1997
all pain or discomfort is a signal that something is wrong.
recognizing this signal, identifying its true cause and then
being able to eliminate or distance yourself from that cause
is a major perk of understanding yourself.
i stepped up and took ownership of my company's computer network before a
very critical (movie release) time after two e-mail post offices and a
server had crashed. everything had to be working by monday 5am or we could
have lost a lot of money. the successfull completion of this project took
me to a level i had never been before...ohio boy riding around so CA,
roof-off, listening to funkadelic, staying at a company expensed hotel
with the weight of a $150 million company's computer network on
achieving and maintaining the intensity & focus, then coming down off
the "high" and returning to my normal operating mode while still feeling
the pressures and pleasures of my new self-appointed responsibility became
to much- physically and mentally. my personality also became very intense,
focused. i was in need of a way to release and relax...and im in the process
of doing that now, its been almost 2 weeks and im just starting to feel
like jeffery again...
ketchup: there was not one ticket scalper outside the filmore for the tower
of power / AWB concert in san francisco friday night, so i ate two of those
designer pizza's and slepted in the car until my hosts returned.
THANKS THANK THANKS to rick&kelly for another wonderful stay at the ranch
and for the nice travel size bottle of lotion i accidently picked up...
(not just) knee deep props to R-Dub for producing the first original song
by PFUNK1; "i got floppy disks fallin' out my bag." the scientific
revolution is a very cool store on universal city walk, the book "Stars and
Planets" (j. ekrutt, barrons:1992) explains the motion of the earth and
other planets and my position relative to other celestial objects in our
solar system, galaxy and universe...
happiness isn't what you have
but the ability to enjoy what you got

im very tense. jeffery couldn't even handle being jeffery today-
ive been too intense, too aggressive, too focused- i left work early.
i need to relax badly...maintaining this intensity feels unhealthy...
i got my eye on the prize but i gotta remember having fun (funk)
is part my goal and my philosophy...but i crave the intensity-
its always all or nothing...
september 29, 1997
on thursday i talked to the girl who "took me the highest" for the first
time in 3 months. sunday, i talked to the girl who is "the best friend
i ever had by far", it had been 7 months. i don't know where we're going,
i just know im going aggressively and im taking no prisoners
september 23, 1997
in a discovery channel documentary on big cats, a researcher described the
easy-living, food plentiful life of a serengetti lion as a "spoiled
southern california" existence...the manager cranked up the best of sade
which just happened to be playing while i was waiting on some bbq chicken
at the rack shack in old town pasadena...pasadena charter communications
cable co had a high speed internet expo. hi-speed cable internet access:
56k baud upload, 256k download, 2 megs web space, e-mail, cable-modem with
ethernet; $100 setup-$50/month...i pay $30 for an extra phone line and $20
for access at 28.8K now each month, got a cool msnbc pin too...
september 22, 1997
valley ranch wood pit BBQ (sherman way, van nuys) has decent BBQ chicken.
zangkok chicken's (sepulveda blvd) roasted bird ain't bad either. the
airtel plaza hotel's (van nuys) complimentary breakfast buffet was good
enough to eat all three days i was there, the swimming pool is nice too...
i may have been wrong about venus being the bright object in the west,
it could be saturn...
september 13, 1997
jimmy hamilton & the sai whatt band was so good at my babysitter's (30
years ago) social club's fund raiser friday night that i went and saw them
again on saturday at the main event (la brea, inglewood). masa- the
japanese dude on lead guitar is featured on a pretty mean cover of purple
rain by prince. the music and dancing is really sensual when black people
party. more ketchup: the #5 theater at edwards cinema in west covina is so
steep that the top of the seat in front of me was down at my feet and the
center of the screen was at eye level. in the movie event horizion, the
antagonist explains that his machine can put two seperate instances of
space and time together by folding space time on top of itself. he also
threw in other good stuff like singularty, space is curved/warped, etc...
as soon as a movie deviates to far from reality and believeablity i loose
respect for it, when that happens i can't enjoy it...his concept was
understandable but maybe not possible...
september 6, 1997
been bizzy, ketchup time: my steelervsdallas review. the bright object low
in the west is venus. the bartender at the robin hood british pub (burbank
blvd, van nuys) played some good tunes on the jukebox but i had to play
stuff off the best of sade and alanis cds. she was also very, very friendly
til 2am when the bar closed and she wanted us out of there. the fettucini
alfredo at the cheesecake factory (marina del rey) is ok, but the buffalo
wings, sourdough bread, and lemonade are perspectively better...
august 29, 1997
the fettucini alfredo at ToTo's on sepulveda blvd in van nuys is very good.
good positive funky dance music at Q's in oldtown pasadena on thursdays,
crowd is cute, in the twentys and very fun to dance with. the guitarist on
the patio upstairs there was so funny i tipped him $5...
august 26, 1997
i employ a hedonistic philosophy in which playing and pleasure are as important as working
and discipline. i also strive to achieve harmony with everything i come in contact with.
the result is success in life and i celebrate this success with the dance.
i am the subliminal seducer, i will never dance

every year a bunch of guys make a pilgramage to las vegas and when they
get there they place some cards on a table and then each picks one. if
you pick the coveted ace, you get the right to pick the first (and best)
player in their fantasy football league draft. the tropicana (all you can
eat crab legs) is good, but even with the hour wait the mirage (asian
ribs) has probably vegas' best buffet. the tropicana pool area is a very
good people watching spot. after i let everybody in vegas know who picked
the ace, i made packer qb bret farve the # 1 pick in the HAI FFL draft.
i picked-up his receivers brooks & freeman later...
august 20, 1997
the bright star to the east is jupiter.
laurnea's CD "betta listen" has a few really-really good moments-
august 16, 1997
guitar heaven is a cool little shop on sunset. it was my duty to inform
my 18 yr old cousin that the 405 north / 10 east / 110 north- santa monica
to pasadena trek is the toughest sequence of freeways & interchanges i've
ever seen. she didn't know, she'd never driven on a CA freeway before our
return home from venice beach (white girls are everywhere) today. another
sharp & articulate cousin out of the clear blue asked "do girls like you?"
i could do nothing but smile at the 5 yr old princess...
august 11, 1997
beach front parking is free in the lot at the ends of bicknell & bay st
(see 7/15) afterwork on weekdays, and the sun sets very nicely behind the
santa monica pier...i had a 15 second face to face with a skunk, it was
close, but he flinched first-
august 10, 1997
50% of the dailys are written az if they are to this little girl i know-
inspiration this good is hard to find, thanx-

the scarletts are a white female r&b band that i heard do a cover of
flashlight by parliament a couple of years ago. they play at cozy's
bar & grill (ventura blvd, sherman oaks) on wednesdays, but tonight it
was the blues band johnny o. nice place, good sound, pool tables, crowd
seemed mostly lower to mid 20's in age...it was cool-
this is my kinda site...
august 4, 1997
i think i may have had the best week of my life...
and there were no exchanges of any kind of bodily fluids-
great lunch dates, many good conversations, intellectual exchanges, and
new personal relationships, a lithuanian gorl, 2 good concerts & backstage
party with funkadelic, a colordao river boat ride, a very funny gorl from
las vegas i met in the laughlin flamingo hilton casino, and a good-
challenging-motivating job with a gang of fun & attractive folx...
july 26, 1997
the vegetarian thai pasta at the warehouse in marina del rey
has the deepest, richest cheddar cheese sauce i have ever tasted-
but a very generic classic r&b band...
july 25, 1997
i personally gave my opinion on a movie trailer to the director of a
major motion picture- a wave to play with
july 22, 1997
dinah's (san fernando rd, burbank) has the world's best fried chicken
july 21, 1997
mirage is a very good christian pop/rock band consisting of two of my
co-workers and wife. good performance tonight at universal's city walk,
but it wasn't enough to win the competition. maybe if dean would have
remembered the sponsors name...funkier than i expected, good lyrics and
melodys, soothing singable feel good groove music ...
props to the palacio's, dean & tony-
july 19, 1997
VERY good people watching at gladstone's 4 fish, universal city walk...
good window seat with no waiting around 4pm. fried seafood plate, diet
coke, bread- all very tasty. nice after dinner ride up ventura blvd to
balboa lake for some early-evening outdoor shoes-off relaxation and
conversation. my buddy had a frisibee, i think i threw it once-
lunch for 2, tip, parkiing: $52

authentic el salvadoran food at mi casita salvadorena in van nuys-
my garlic fish was served with my butter knife completely hidden under it-
rice was good too, should have got the fruity drink...
july 15, 1997
parking with ocean view, beach, grass area, bathroom, good people traffic,
walking distance to santa monica pier: bay st between ocean & ocean front
jeffery: life is funny
jackie: yeah, but everybody ain't laughin'1993
july 11, 1997
the hot links at dr hogly wogly's in van nuys are too soft-
ribs are good and they give you extra sauce, the bread is real good...
july 9, 1997
before the special screening of the movie "Suicide Kings" with
christoper walken and dennis leary in old town pasadena this afternoon,
the movie's director announced we will be seeing the raw "work cut"-
funny, witty & entertaining movie with good, very likable characters-
i missed the raw parts...
july 8, 1997
the encino franchise of the hamburger place islands has valet parking...
and the #3 ranked franchise french fries, (#1 In-N-Out, #2 McDonald's)
july 6, 1997
it cost $25 to park for 6 hours at san francisco's fisherman's wharf.
riding BART ('frisco's subway) is fun. even with fog/clouds a 18th floor
SF downtown roof top view is nice, the cheapy $16 bay cruise is very
hypnotic, good seafood alfredo at dante's on pier 39. it is good
to have friends who can not only supply 1st class accomadations, but who
also make very good tour guides...thanx rick & kelly, it was very nice.
i think i love seeing the golden gate bridge because it is man made...
july 1, 1997
i thank the chicago bulls and my co-worker for the free lunch at benihana's
in encino today, the shrimp was very tasty...i restate my 6/24 comment
about the people excersing, jogging, and rollerblading down at the
rose bowl- a diverse and very, very attractive crowd...
june 29, 1997
at first i was totally disgusted and thought tyson should have been taken
right from the ring to jail. im still up in the air about it. i was very
impressed with the post fight interviews. evander and especially tyson's
camp did good under the circumstances. my brothers were very, very upset
but said absolutely nothing incriminating- even with good, agressive
questioning by the commentator. my favorite line was by tyson when asked
when he would address a certain question, "i addressed it in the ring"
june 26, 1997
billboard live on sunset is kinda "gadgety", TV's in the wall outstide and
in the floor, big screens showing videos, it was really dark inside too... zapp featuring roger was the headliner-
for the little gorl who took me the highest ...
maybe the lateness of the hour, makes me seem bluer than i am-
but over my heart there is a shower, hope she'll be happier with him
"hope she'll be happier", sweetback
june 24, 1997
ok, i may be easily impressed. very good looking bunch of folx strolling
around the rose bowl these days afterwork, the swarm of about 100 bikes is
cool too, nice 3 mile lap- Sarah McLachan will be on AOL tomorrow ...
june 23, 1997
sade's old band has a CD out under the name "sweetback", very nice-
its cool to have a bartender buddy even when you don't drink alcohol,
props to my man sky at the 35er in old town pasadena, good jukebox too-
june 21, 1997
both of the employees i came in contact with at the pasadena target
store openly complained about management, one even mentioned "union."
good mac'n'cheese, greens, meat/sauce, music at the rack shack in old town
pasadena, "best of sade" was in the CD rotation ... props to my computer guy
neil @ nexcom in city of industry, i learned to re-attrib system files to
allow the install of win'95 on a machine that already has NT server 4.0-
june 20, 1997
cool, trendy crowd at hollywood park race track, at least in the
"middle class" section. 6'8" 700lb sumo wrestlers, cheerleaders, $1 beer,
club with band. nice box seats outside, good lighting, big tv screens-
Harper's Bar & Grill (ave of the stars, century city) real nice also ...
life is good
if your's ain't, its broke-
fix it like you would your car
june 19, 1997 hey-
i digs rollin' thru old town pasadena via the 134 fwy east's colorado blvd
exit ... early evening, sun at my back, the whole street is lit up-
makes for good viewing of the female population.
this is america , land of oppurtunity
